Another barbershop, next to this glorious teal (or turquoise) pair of ornate doors.
St Stephen’s Basilica is wonderful. It was built to commemorate the first king of Hungary. Who was called Stephen. He would give his right hand to be in this Roman Catholic church – indeed, there is an “incorruptible” hand on display. The reliquary doesn’t have a door, so no gross photographs.
According to Wikipedia, Budapest has several fond nicknames – Heart of Europe, Queen of the Danube, Pearl of the Danube, Capital of Freedom, Capital of Spas and Thermal Baths, Capital of Festivals.
Budapest was voted the best European city for travellers in 2019, when it attracted more than 12 million tourists. I went in November, but it is lovely in spring time. Most visitors cram into the city over the summer months, when it is warmer and crowded.
